Can You See What I See?

For this assignment we were supposed to add something into the reflection of someone’s eye. My friend James loves Jaguar cars so I added that! My Photoshop skills are not the best so it looks kind of strange but you get the idea!

Pet Collage

One of the assignments that I chose to do was a pet collage so here it is! This is Watson (Rottweiler and Beagle mix)  and Mollie (Aussie Shepard).

How to be a Better Photographer

Hello all! For my tip, I chose to discuss the rule of thirds. I use this rule all the time and it basically means this: divide your photo up into 9 sections and keep your subject on the lines. So you will have 3 vertical lines in your photo and 3 horizontal lines, therefore splitting the picture into thirds vertically and horizontally. Then you want to stay as close to the lines as possible.

As you can see with this photo, the subject is right along the right 1/3 of the frame, therefore upholding this rule. With the next photo you can see that is not the case.

However, the way she is looking is leaned towards the right side of the frame and is almost on the 1/3 line. All in all, this rule is more of a guideline. There is no magic rule that will make your picture better than another. I loved all the readings and videos and agree that your photos should tell a story. To end this post I’ll leave you with a quote. Marc Riboud, a famous french photographer, once said “Taking pictures is savoring life intensely, every hundredth of a second.”
